At Lanto Education, in our teaching approach, we use the communicative method with particular emphasis placed on enabling our students to communicate proficiently and effectively in English. All of our courses are designed in such a way that enables every student to use English from their very first lesson, no matter what his or her level of language competence is. The student’s level of language competence grows through continuous communication. Our practical teaching approach ensures fast progress. Students quickly become more confident in speaking, listening, reading and writing in English.
Our teachers are fully and highly qualified teachers in English language instruction and have many years of experience. They have the most highly regarded and recognized qualifications for English language teachers, such as, CELTA (Cambridge Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults) and Cambridge DELTA (Diploma in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages). Some of our teachers have an MA in Linguistics from European Universities. The high caliber of our teachers is an essential component of our success.
We understand how busy you are. Hence, our courses are uniquely tailored to suit your needs. There is no need for you to spend many hours travelling to your lessons. You may elect the option for our tutor to go to you!
Each level consists of 100 Academic Hours with one Academic Hour equal to 45 minutes. We are flexible in our approach and depending on the course, we have a variety of course formats. For example:
3 Academic Hours per week — complete one level in 8 months.
6 Academic Hours per week — complete one level in 4 months.
10 Academic Hours per week — complete one level in 2.5 months.
At the end of each level, students undertake “end-of-course testing” to assess and validate their progress in areas such as grammar, vocabulary, reading, listening, speaking and writing. There are also “check your progress tests” which students undertake regularly during the course. The official Lanto Education Certificate is awarded to students who successfully complete their respective course.
We also provide a Student Attendance Record for each student and requisite financial documents for your finance department.
